Description

"The perfect guide for a course correction in life, away from materialism and its empty promise" (Deepak Chopra), The Wisdom of Insecurity shows us how—in an age of unprecedented anxiety—we must embrace the present and live fully in the now in order to live a fulfilling life.


Spending all our time trying to anticipate and plan for the future and to lamenting the past, we forget to embrace the here and now. We are so concerned with tomorrow that we forget to enjoy today. Drawing from Eastern philosophy and religion, Alan Watts shows that it is only by acknowledging what we do not—and cannot—know that we can learn anything truly worth knowing.


“Perhaps the foremost interpreter of Eastern disciplines for the contemporary West, Watts had the rare gift of ‘writing beautifully the unwritable.’”

—Los Angeles Times

Същински извор на мъдрост е Алън Уотс. Благодаря ви!

Pros: Добър превод и оформление на книжното тяло

Деница 06/09/2021

Невероятна книга, една от най-добрите, които съм чела. Без излишно разкатаване са обяснени по достъпен и интересен начин основни концепции за човека, живота, Бог, съзнанието. Върху почти всеки абзац може да се медитира дълго!

Pros: Твърда корица и добър превод

Ан.М 28/08/2021

Страхотна книга! Писана е през 50-те години на миналия век, а е по-актуална от всякога.

Pros: Дебели корици, майсторски обяснения на източни концепции разбираеми за западния ум
